Feast of Christ the King
Official Synod press spokesmen: Non serviam

Today is the Feast of Christ the King in the traditional Latin rite calendar. The Introit of the Mass refers to the "Lamb that was slain" who is "worthy to receive power and divinity and wisdom and strength and honor"; and the Collect refers to the Son of Almighty God who is "the King of the whole world" through Whom "all the families of nations now kept apart by the wound of sin may be brought under the sweet yoke of His rule."

But how many yet remain who continue to embrace submission to the sovereign majesty and rule of Jesus Christ as a "sweet yoke"? How many could still say with the Psalmist, "O how I love Thy law! ... How sweet are Thy words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!"

Even if the Synod is over, of course, it's not over -- just as Vatican II is not over even if it's been over for five decades. The "Spirit of the Synod" lives on just as the "Spirit of Vatican II" lives on, as a pretext for revisionism.

For the revisionists who controlled the Synod, this was the purpose of the Synod -- an ecclesial sensitivity session in "accompanying" families broken by divorce and re-marriage and with practicing gay couples in order to "listen" to them, a means of leveraging a "pastoral" theology of dissent.

This synodal event, now being called (like Vatican II) a "language event," is really only a relatively minor blip in the perpetual roller coaster ride of permanent revolution promoted by a dialectic of diabolical revisionism.
